Environmental Stewardship

Good Neighbors. Environmentally and Socially Responsible.


Cette information est présentement disponible en anglais. Une traduction suivra sous peu. As one of our core values, we're committed to environmental responsibility and operating in full compliance with the letter and spirit of environmental laws and regulations. We strive to be responsible stewards within the communities where we operate and conduct business around the world. 

We take a proactive approach:

  • Educating our employees about environmental responsibility.
  • Using best in class technologies to mitigate our impact on the environment.
  • Continuously evaluating and implementing processes to reduce waste streams.
  • Encouraging the use of castings in their natural state without coatings or paint to eliminate non-essential materials and processes. 
  • Designing optimized products that use less material and provide superior performance.

Environmentally Responsible Manufacturing

We take pride in recycling thousands of tons of post-consumer material into new useful products that build modern infrastructure that can last for decades. We leverage our global capabilities to manage the lifecycle of our products, which gives us a unique advantage of being able to address environmental concerns. Our products have an enduring service life, and typically require little to no maintenance. 


Cast Iron Products Contain Over 85% Recycled Content

Thousands of tons of scrap metals are recycled annually and turned into usable products that build your infrastructure. Our cast iron products contain over 85% recycled content and are also 100% recyclable.


Environmental Messaging

Environmental messaging helps protect our waterways and products often include "Dump No Waste! Drains to Waterways" accompanied by a fish image. These permanently cast messages serve as an enduring reminder against dumping into our waterways.


Responsible Manufacturing

Our state-of-the-art foundries use environmental controls and technology to meet some of the most stringent environmental regulations in the world.

Reclaimed Molding Sand

In our foundry processes, over 90% of our green sand is reclaimed daily and reused in our molding process. 

EJ optimized castings stacked innovative

Optimized Designs

Historically, access solutions were overbuilt using rudimentary methods. Through engineering, technology, and manufacturing advancements, we design and produce superior performing products with reduced weights, thus saving energy and raw materials while ensuring our customers best in class products.

EJ tires for recycling for INFRA-RISER

Recycled Tires

Recycled tires make up the majority of our INFRA-RISER® adjustment risers. Consisting of 92% recycled content, this environmentally friendly product also reduces unwanted stormwater infiltration into sanitary sewer systems.
